CHARLOTTE ATYEO represents non-fiction authors across a range of genres.
Before agenting, she spent ten years at Bloomsbury, where she was Publisher of prize-winning narrative sport titles, general non-fiction titles, reference books, The Nightwatchman quarterly, and Wisden Cricketers’ Almanack. In the ten years prior to this, she was an Editor at Kogan Page, Sweet & Maxwell, and Metro Publishing/Richard Cohen Books, and so has worked across business, management, cookery, fiction, gift, humour, and legal books.
She is primarily looking for non-fiction books in general non-fiction, biography and memoir, sport and exercise/fitness, feminism and gender/equality issues, music, design, nature writing, and travel writing. However, a compelling story and a clear voice will always pique her interest.
On the fiction side, she is taking on a small number of literary novels. Some of the fiction she has loved most in recent years includes Reservoir 13 by Jon McGregor, My Absolute Darling by Gabriel Tallent, Based on a True Story by Delphine de Vigan, Weathering by Lucy Wood, All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, The Power by Naomi Alderman, Burial Rites by Hannah Kent, We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves by Karen Joy Fowler, The Girls by Emma Cline, and The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt.
